The quake caused damage to buildings in Ancona, which is 14 km northwest of the offshore epicenter. Among them, one governmental building and a fire station. Small cracks are also reported from residental houses and offices. This is to be verified by civil protection. Nothing serious so far.
Some landslides and rockfalls along the cliffs (limestone) are reported. It was temporarily thought that one of them might have buried a man on the beach, but this was not confirmed later.
